About Maria-Gracia

Hello, my name is Maria and I am excited to have the opportunity to be your tutor! I am a current Clark County School District teacher. I have taught 3rd grade for two years and 5th for one year. As an avid learner, education is my passion and I hope to help you reach your educational goals.

I tutor k-6 students in math, reading, and writing for the common core as well as Spanish and ESL. I hold high expectations of myself and students and I will begin with a diagnostic to see where your child is and how we can best support them in their education journey.

I am originally from Peru, and then moved to Seattle at the age of 12. I have been living in Las Vegas for the past 3 years where I obtained an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Elementary Education from the University of Las Vegas Nevada. I am currently working on a Gifted and Talented endorsement through Southern Utah University.

Growing up, Math was my least favorite subject, after learning different strategies to teach math, it has become one of my favorites. I have a Med in Elementary Education and I am certified K-6 with a Nevada State Teaching License. Due to my lack of math understanding growing up I can use a variety of strategies to teach different math concepts.

Born and raised in Peru until the age of 12, I know what is like to be a newcomer and have to learn English. I have a minor in Teaching English to Students of Other Languages (TESOL) with a Bilingual Education certification. I have a Med in Elementary Education and I am certified K-6 with a Nevada State Teaching License. I have a passion for reading and having book conversations.

Spanish is a language I hold dear as this is my native language. I obtained a minor in Spanish and have tutored multiple students in Spanish. I am fluent in Spanish and have vast knowledge of grammar and vocabulary in written and oral form.

Common Core State Standards are the benchmarks for each grade level. They are guidelines for teachers as to where students need to be at the end of every year. Having taught 3rd and 5th grade I have a vast knowledge on the standards and what is required for each students in ELA and Math in order for them to be ready for the following year.

Education is what I am passionate about and I am looking forward to the opportunity to help your child or you grow in all areas of education and reach their and your personal goals in a fun an engaging way. I hope to hear from you soon!
